Two-thirds of Britons do not care if refusing to intervene militarily in Syria damages the US-UK “special relationship,” according to a BBC poll released Monday.

The poll also found 71 percent of Britons felt the House of Commons was right to reject Prime Minister David Cameron’s call for military action in Syria last week.

The poll was commissioned by the BBC from ICM Research, which spoke to 1,000 adults in England, Scotland and Wales by telephone between Friday and Monday.
